Finnish Air Force 100th Anniversary Show 2018

Postby Jakesplanes on Sun 06 Aug 2017, 3:26 pm

Dates are listed as 16th and 17th of June, 2018. The event will be held at Jyväskylä, the site of the FiAF training command. Also on this site is the Air Force Museum, home to some interesting airframes such as the last surviving Brewster Buffalo and the only complete Fokker DXXI. Expect this to be a very well supported show, especially from potential suppliers of the Finnish HX Fighter procurement program.

There’s very little to report at the moment, I emailed the organizers on a business matter two weeks ago and there was no information. The website hints at various foreign acts and candidates for the HX program, and promised to update within a week, which was three weeks ago... incidentally there WILL be special arrangements for spotters and press, details also to come... guess we just have to be patient. HX is the fighter procurement to replace the legacy Hornets in Finnish service and consists of Typhoon, Rafael, super Hornet or F-35, so expect to see all of these at least. I’ll keep you all informed as and when! Tervetulua Suomeen!
